The Yukon River is best known for assisting the gold seekers during the exciting Klondike Gold Rush. Along the way you will see relics of several steamships, old settler cabins and gold dredges on the banks of the river. As you paddle down this historic river you will canoe through many famous Yukon landmarks such as Lake Laberge, Thirty Mile River and Hootalinqua, a historic North West Mounted Police outpost and Fort Selkirk an abandoned town.
The Yukon flows north all the way to the Bering Strait through some of the wildest terrain in the world!
The Yukon River twists and turns through a vast and beautiful natural landscape. Starting upriver from Lake Laberge, you will admire the endless wilderness surrounding you, where grizzly bear, wolf, moose, caribou, wolverine, mink, bald eagle, marten and beaver roam. Relax after a day of paddling while casting your lure for “the big catch” of the day or just enjoy the serene setting.
The Yukon River Expedition will take you down the swift waters from Lake Laberge to Dawson City. At the end of your journey you will arrive in Dawson City where you will have the opportunity to live and play like the gold seekers did over 100 years ago! The Yukon River Expedition is a fascinating and pleasurable river adventure for both the beginner and intermediate canoeist.
